From the woman’s expression alone, one cannot easily see the secret that the woman is hiding, until the eye goes further down her arm towards the knife in hand. Depicted in regal but modernised dress, the image itself is in black and white, to let the yellow gold stand out, especially in the gold leaf background that is a signature of the artist’s style. With empathy turning into intrigue, the artist comments on how we are easily manipulated by beauty, media and our surroundings in assessing a persons guilt.
